Learning experience for school classes

Learn, understand, experience – history you can touch: centuries-old houses, atmospheric rooms, smoky kitchens, blooming gardens, living animals and a cornucopia of smells and scents - all these things that children will not find elsewhere in this form and variety. 
Here they can enjoy discovering what history has to do with the present.
